Truth from the hearts of leaders
Very refreshing and insightful podcast and interview. Both Noah and Ken share openly from their experiences in ministry and pastoring a church. Not only for those in ministry, but for anyone who attends a ministry.
Great concept, looking forward to more!
I read Noah’s blog. He has thoughtful insights into the way Christianity intersects with culture, where they line up and were they differ and why. He doesn’t always take the position you think he’s going to and that’s refreshing as his arguments are logical and full of common sense while maintaining Biblical orthodoxy.
Full Frontal Christianity
Just what our society needs in this day in age. The potential for men to be exposed and engrossed in sexual sin is, without a doubt, the most relationship-altering aspect of their lives. We cannot help but to air out these circumstances so that all may have a chance at winning the battle. We are given free will, but by going through these tribulations honestly and openly, those men come out stronger and able to guide other men who are in the flames of despair. Very frank, cordial podcast.
